Illinois Holocaust Museum

When a group of neo-Nazis planned to march in heavily Jewish Skokie in the 1970s, local Holocaust survivors banded together to create the educational group, Holocaust Memorial Foundation of Illinois. After ten years of planning, the foundation opened a 65,000-square-foot Stanley Tigerman–designed museum in 2009. It houses more than 11,000 artifacts, several of which are on display in a 10,000-square-foot exhibit on the Holocaust and international occurrences of genocide.
